Hand Crafted Parlor Guitars

The small-bodied parlor guitar is a very comfortable size for all guitar players, yet is a favorite choice for smaller persons and blues guitar players. The parlor guitar still packs a surprising amount of volume, tone, and bass. After the first chord on this instrument is strummed, its acoustics always bring a smile and wide-eyed response from the player and/or customer.

This basic acoustic guitar design can be custom modified to fit the needs of most guitar players, including various wood choices, voicing methods, and many other variables that can produce a very different feel and tonal quality.
